Betting Tip: Swindon 2.5 Over @ 4/5 with bet365

Under normal circumstances, Swindon would not be 11/5 to win this football match. After all, the Robins are 29 points better off than their opponents, having accumulated 77 points from 44 matches. This includes eleven wins on the road so why are they such a big price?

It is mainly down to the fact that Mark Cooper’s side have banked a play-off place while Colchester are scrapping for their lives at the bottom of League One. A win for the U’s will lift them out of the drop zone and leave them needing one more win against Preston to be completely sure of their status.

Therefore, the home side have greater motivation to win although backing them at 5/4 seems a dodgy decision considering they have won just six of their twenty-one matches at home this season.

A 3-2 win at Fleetwood at the weekend was a big boost to their survival hopes, although Swindon will want to play themselves into some form before a play-off contest in a fortnight’s time.

Therefore, we’re backing plenty of goals in this match, with six of Colchester’s last seven games ending in three goals or more and Swindon can play their part in an entertaining thriller.

Swindon recently won 4-2 at Rochdale to illustrate that they are a team full of goals, with a 3-3 draw against Walsall confirming that fact.
